AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR (2018): Benicio Del Toro Rumored To Appear

Benicio Del Toro Speculated To Appear In Avengers: Infinity War

Guardians of the Galaxy actor Benicio del Toro is said to be reprising his role as The Collector in Avengers: Infinity War.

While most of the main cast of the Marvel science fiction adventure film have been confirmed as appearing in some capacity in the studio’s planned crossover, del Toro has not previously been cited as a contender for the movie. That changed this week when Academy Award-nominated Milk actor Josh Brolin inadvertently dropped a major bombshell on social media. Speaking directly to his followers during an Instagram live stream, the star shared that he would be shooting scenes for the film with Guardians stars Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, and del Toro. This means that Thanos, Starlord, and Gamora may very well be joined by The Collector in the film.

ComicBookMovie.com, the source of this story, had this to add about the story:

To add fuel to the fire, not long after the initial news broke Del Toro was photographed in Atlanta, which is where Infinity War & Black Panther are both currently filming. There is a possibility he could be in town for something Black Panther-related and/or possibly to meet with Brolin before they begin work on the upcoming Sicario sequel, Soldado, but the mention of both Pratt & Saldana seems to suggest he’s really in town to cause trouble for the Avengers.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
